Field Trip -Ft. Walton
September 9 @ 7:30 am - 2:00 pm
Saturday, September 9, Ft. Walton.
Lucy & Bob Duncan will lead the group to impoundments in the Ft. Walton area looking for shorebirds and early migrant songbirds. If you own a spotting scope, be sure to bring it.
We hope to see Black-bellied Plovers in breeding plumage, and possibly Pectoral and Buff-breasted Sandpipers. Also with luck, we might see Upland Sandpipers, Black-necked Stilts and several species of “peeps.” Expect easy walking.
We plan to eat lunch at a restaurant. Meet at 7:30 a.m. in the Office Depot parking lot across from the hospital in Gulf Breeze (1155 Gulf Breeze Parkway). We plan to return by mid-afternoon.
Field trips are open to the public and free of charge, but contributions are appreciated. All experience levels are welcome. Bring binoculars and/or a spotting scope. Sunscreen, insect protection, appropriate shoes, hat, water, and snacks or lunch are recommended on all trips.
Please refrain from wearing scented cologne, perfumes or aftershave on field trips. It distracts from the experience in nature, and some participants are highly sensitive to it. Carpooling is encouraged.
Questions? Call Lucy Duncan at 932-4792 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
